Aman group to open New York hotel in 2020

The high-end Aman resorts group has announced the opening of a new property in New York, its third in the US, in 2020.

The 83-room hotel will occupy 22 floors in Manhattan’s famous Crown building, including a three-story spa on the seventh, eighth and ninth floors. The 2,044sq m Aman Spa will feature a 25-metre swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and relaxation loungers.

Other spa elements will include a sauna and steam room and an outdoor terrace with cabanas, daybeds and a fireplace. Additional hotel features will include the Garden Terrace, offering views of Central Park, a jazz club, piano bar, cigar bar and wine library.

There will also be an Italian and a Japanese restaurant, among other hotel amenities. The upper floors will be occupied by 20 private residences, including a five-story penthouse with indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a terrace.

The owners of the Aman Residences will have unlimited access to all hotel services and facilities. Aman New York will be the hotel and resort group’s third US property, following the Amangiri in Utah and Amangani in Wyoming.

The Aman group, originally best known for more remote properties, is expanding its portfolio of urban hotels, having also opened the Aman Tokyo in December 2014.
